RARE VINTAGE SELMER AIRFLOW B. W/ SELMER LIGATURE & VINTAGE CAP. SELMER alto sax mouthpieces are historically known for being an excellent choice for saxophonists ranging from top level professionals to serious students.This is a rare Selmer Airflow B mouthpiece. I've seen AIRFLOW mouthpieces before but not one like this. The B is marked on the side of the facing and the Selmer logo on the back is not in an oval circle.
Because I hadn't seen an AIRFLOW SELMER piece like this before, I didn't know it was an AIRFLOW so I emailed Theo Wanne and asked him about this piece. I was told by Theo Wanne that this is an AIRFLOW SELMER mouthpiece circa 1926.It is made with high quality hard rubber. This piece sounds great producing a rich warm and clear tone. It is in used working condition and plays well.
Tip, table, rails, beak show some wear and signs of use. There are some teeth marks but nothing that affects the playability of this fine piece. Shows signs of use, some blemishes, nicks, scratches and oxidation. The ligature is Paris Selmer and it plays well and is an excellent match with this B mouthpiece.
Cap is vintage and fits the mouthpiece well. Winner gets this vintage rarer AIRFLOW piece as a part of sax history. It's always cool to me to think about what was going on, the circumstances, history, particulars and people related to the specific item way back when these vintage items were new.Please check my other listings. I have a NY USA MEYER 7M ALTO & a really great Conn. Berry New Wonder II alto. Also some other sax and woodwind items.
